Hello peeps and creeps. Dropping by to let you know that the voting for the Pasta of the Month has begun. I dropped the ball and the voting was delayed (Emp again swooped in for the save). Sorry for that. You can now head over to the voting page. You can find the nominated stories there. Just click the link and cast your vote.
Also, we moved away from the built-in poll system, since it is prone to exploitation. We now use Strawpoll, which seems pretty good. We are still not sure what will be the definite system for voting, so if you have any suggestions, please let us know in the comments!
Happy reading!Read more >
Hey folks. Dupin here. I have been a bit inactive late, apologies for that, but I want to let you guys know of a really cool channel I have been following for a while: Tale Foundry. They make videos analyzing art and mainly literature. I highly recommend checking them out.
Recently they created a Patreon, because it is hard to keep the production value at its current level. If you have a spare dollar to spare, be cool and head over to their Patreon to donate.

By the way, next week my exams are over and I will finally be able to grab my banhammer again. You have been warned!Read more >
Recently I decide to check out the Reddit creepypasta threads to see what the fuss was all about, and I have to say I was severely disappointed. I posted a couple of my stories on the shortscarystories thread, which admittedly aren't masterpieces on their own, but after they received no feedback I decided to check out the liked stories there to see what people on the thread like. So I read the most upvoted pastas on the thread and I found the answer to my inquiry. People on the thread like shit. Pretty much all of the best stories there would get deleted on here without much of a second glance (only a couple float around our Quality Standards). And keep in mind these stories I link below have almost 100% like/dislike ratio.
So, I tread thro…Read more >
Hey y'all. I'm here to talk about something that scared me shitless yesterday.
I was watching some Youtube videos at 1am like the lazy bum I am, when I got recommended the following video by the Youtube gods.
That video creeped me out beyond belief. I was alone in the house and a storm was raging outside. I was clinging on my cat for dear life. If you want a spook, I can't recommend this video enough. God, the way she moves her hands. Gah! I get chills just thinking about it.
Of course I am a little biased because for some reason I am absolutely terrified of people convulsing and twitching, but still. I think it's objectively a very scary video.
Unfortunately for me, my imagination flared up and I kept looking at the empty chair across my room…

I don't know if you've heard of it, but Librivox is a site where one can download free narrations of works in the public domain. There is also an option to do volunteer work as a narrator too. From what I understand, the incentive for narrators are exposure and donations.
So far I've listened to readings of HP Lovecraft and the Arsene Lupin stories by Maurice Leblanc. In the latter, all the readings are of high quality (except the 7th, Madame Imbert's Safe). For Lovecraft, there are a ton of his works and most of them are very high quality.
Pop over if you will and maybe you'll find something you like. I highly suggest it for anyone interest in audiobooks.Read more >
